TOWARD AN EFFICIENT HIGHWAY SERVICE ESTIMATOR FOR CONGESTED NETWORKS

THIS PAPER PRESENTS A NEW APPROACH TO OBTAIN ESTIMATES OF HIGHWAY SERVICES ON CONGESTED NETWORKS. SPECIFICALLY, A 1-PASS INCREMENTAL CAPACITY-RESTRAINT PROCEDURE IS DETAILED THAT GENERATES LOGICAL PATHS FOR REUSAGE WITH THE AVERAGE NETWORK TO OBTAIN TRAVEL-TIME AND TRAVEL-COST ESTIMATES. THE METHOD IS BASED ON THE MULTIPLE-ROUTING PRINCIPLE FOR PATH GENERATION AND SCHNEIDER'S 1-PASS CAPACITY-RESTRAINT TECHNIQUE. THE OPERATION OF THE PROCEDURE IS ILLUSTRATED WITH AN EXAMPLE, AND RESULTS OF SEVERAL ANALYSES ARE ALSO PRESENTED. SUGGSTIONS ARE MADE FOR FURTHER RESEARCH TO ESTABLISH RELIABLE PROCEDURES FOR THE ESTIMATION OF AVERAGE SPEEDS AND TO INVESTIGATE FURTHER THE VALIDITY OF THE CAPACITY-RESTRAINT PATHS IN RELATION TO THE LOADING SEQUENCE USED BY THE PROCEDURE. /AUTHOR/
